    If anyone is looking for the combiner version of Voltron, Torrington Target has one each of the Lion limbs and few Black Lions. They also had a bunch of the non combining 14" Voltron.

    Manchester Walmart. Wave 3 Legends. Case was on the overhead shelf in the lego section. Randomly spotted it as I was leaving. Kickback and Bee still left.

    RID StormShot deluxe at Manchester Target.

    Yesterday there was some Voltron combining lions at Meriden and Bristol Targets apparently, because my wife grabbed a whole set between both stores.

    She said there was no wave 3 Titans Return deluxes.

    Off topic:

    Is there a release button or something on Voltron to detach the red and green lions? They snap in ridiculous tight

    Waterbury Target has all your Voltron needs. All the combining lions, black lion, etc.

    TF wise, they have the wave 3 Titanmasters, and the RID Warrior wave with Ratchet. Otherwise, pegs still pretty bare.

    No button and they were extremely difficult to remove. Here is a couple videos, the first is from Playmates. I don't really like this method, but it is semi-official. My lions still didn't come out easy and you have to make sure not to put too much pressure on the middle section of the lions.:

    The above method in the video does work, but I couldn't get it on the first try. I had to use a thin screwdriver to pry the connector out.
    But after one or two times, I can get the video method to work just fine.

    How to remove lion/arms from Voltron:

    Raise arm so it is sticking straight out ( like it's going to push something) grasp rear section on arm/lion. Push inward toward torso/black lion. Arm/lion will separate with very little force.

    Yeah, pretty good method, but sometimes you need to "break in" the connector first.
    The first time I tried this on either of my arm lions, it threatened to snap them at the waist before releasing the shoulder.
    Once I pried them out, they work very well now.

    Naugy Walmart has one set of Combining Voltron lions, plenty of Wave 2 TR, and a few wave 3TR legends, but only Bee, I grabbed the Gnaw.

    Waterbury TRU has no lions but did have a CF RID Stormshot.

    That's a bit better. Sadly, I've got car parts to buy. Maybe next month, but I'm definitely going for it.
